This past weekend I attended a CE for medical directors, nursing home administrators and pharmacists. There was a lot of great information focused on taking care of the whole patient. The take-home message resounds in the Homerun Slides we have for you this week. These slides give you the basis for comprehensive care of the patient, but they are only words and pictures on slides.
To help you get immersed in the comprehensive care methods, our publisher, Steven Freed, sat down with Dr. Yehuda Handelsman, one of the key opinion leaders in the diabetes and cardiovascular arena. Dr. Handelsman begins his multi-part interview by discussing what approaches need to be started by any clinician who decides that caring for a patient is more than focusing on lab values and writing prescriptions.
